3DSimED is a powerful software that allows you to edit and convert 3D models for various racing simulators. However, it is not free and requires an activation code to use it beyond the 20-day trial period. In this article, we will show you how to activate 3DSimED for free using a simple trick.
Before we begin, you will need to download and install 3DSimED from the official website[^2^]. You will also need a program called TrashReg[^1^], which can delete registry entries of expired trial software. You can download TrashReg from here[^1^]. Once you have both programs ready, follow these steps:
Run 3DSimED and go to the Help menu. Choose Activation Dialog.
Click on Request Activation Code and fill out the web form. You will receive an email with your activation code.
Enter the code in the green box and click Activate.
Enjoy using 3DSimED for 20 days.
When the trial period expires, run TrashReg and scan your registry for entries related to 3DSimED. Delete them all.
Run 3DSimED again and repeat steps 1 to 4.
By doing this, you can reset the trial period of 3DSimED and use it for free indefinitely. However, this method may not work for future versions of 3DSimED or on some systems. Also, this method may violate the terms of service of 3DSimED, so use it at your own risk. We do not condone piracy or illegal use of software.
If you like 3DSimED and find it useful, we recommend that you support the developer by purchasing a license. You can do so from here[^2^]. A license costs $40 USD and gives you access to all updates and features of 3DSimED.
In this section, we will give you a brief overview of how to use 3DSimED. 3DSimED can import and export various 3D formats, such as FBX, OBJ, 3DS, X, LWO, and more. It can also edit and convert models for specific racing simulators, such as Assetto Corsa, rFactor, Project CARS, and more. You can find the full list of supported formats and simulators here.
To import a model, go to the File menu and choose Import. You can browse for the file you want to import or drag and drop it into the 3DSimED window. You will see a preview of the model and its properties. You can use the mouse and keyboard to rotate, zoom, and pan the view. You can also use the toolbar buttons to change the rendering mode, lighting, background color, and grid settings.
To edit a model, you can use the various tools and options available in the Edit menu and the Properties panel. You can select, move, scale, rotate, copy, paste, delete, hide, and unhide parts of the model. You can also edit the materials, textures, shaders, colors, transparency, and reflection of the model. You can use the Undo and Redo buttons to revert any changes you make.
To export a model, go to the File menu and choose Export. You can choose the format and destination you want to export to. Some formats and simulators may require additional settings or plugins to export correctly. You can find more information about exporting here.
3DSimED also has some advanced features that can help you optimize and enhance your models. For example, you can use the Optimize tool to reduce the polygon count of your model without losing quality. You can use the LOD tool to create different levels of detail for your model depending on the distance from the camera. You can use the Collision tool to create collision meshes for your model that can interact with other objects in the simulator. You can use the Animation tool to create simple animations for your model using keyframes.
These are just some of the basic features of 3DSimED. To learn more about 3DSimED and its capabilities, you can check out the online documentation or watch some tutorials on YouTube. You can also join the official forum or Facebook group to ask questions, share your work, and get feedback from other users. 0efd9a6b88
